Fewer Women in Computer Occupations

Women's share of the 3.6 million people employed in computer jobs is declining rather than rising, reports the Census Bureau. Computer jobs (such as software developer, web developer, and network administrator) account for half of all science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) occupations. In 2011, women were just 27 percent of those employed in computer jobs, down from more than 30 percent in 1990.
